The last thing half-dragon, half-fairy private investigator Twig Starfig wants to do is retrieve a stolen enchanted horn from a treacherous fae, but there’s no denying the dazzlingly gorgeous unicorn who asks Twig to do just that. Literally, no denying, because compelling the reluctant detective is all part of a unicorn’s seductive magic.
To add to his woes, Twig is saddled with the unicorn’s cheeky indentured servant, Quinn Broomsparkle. Dragons are supposed to want to eat humans, but Twig’s half-dragon side only wants to gobble up Quinn in a more personal way. Making matters worse, it’s obvious the smokin’ hot but untrustworthy sidekick is hiding something. Something big. And not what’s in his trousers. In the PI business, that means trouble with a capital Q.
Throw in gads of zombies, a creepy ghost pirate ship, a malfunctioning magic carpet, and Twig’s overbearing fairy father’s demands to live up to the illustrious Starfig name. Naturally, an old but abiding enemy chooses this time to resurface, too. Those inconveniences Twig can handle. The realization he’s falling for a human who isn’t free to return his affections and whose life may hang on the success of his latest case?
I loved the book, but the narration took this to another level! I loved the book and was thrilled there was going to be an audiobook. I didn’t think that anything would top my enjoyment of the book, but boy, was I wrong! Greg Tremblay made it perfect. I loved every minute of listening (even re-listening to parts of the audio). I believed in every character, and Greg managed to make me switch from Twig from being my favourite character to Bill ?, as my favourite. I really hope if this becomes a series Bill gets his own story, but NOT with the odious Bransome ?
An excellent performance!
